Two urban explorers are seeking the next big thrill and may just have found it in France: There is supposed to be a whole estate at the bottom of a lake, a lost family villa, with algae floating and fish swimming through its many rooms—and a grisly secret at its dark, wet heart. While The Deep House was filmed using modern GoPro and drone technology, it is a decidedly old-fashioned horror thriller, a surreal diving expedition through a haunted house submerged in murky waters. The premise alone makes it one of the most extraordinary genre movies of the year.

Alexandre Bustillo, Julien Maury
Bustillo, Alexandre & Julien Maury are a directing duo with a passion for genre cinema. Alexandre (* 1975) and Julien (* 1978) garnered international attention with their first project, the home invasion shocker Inside, which was selected for the 2007 Cannes Critics’ Week. They followed it up with an avant-garde version of the haunted house movie, Livid. SLASH 2014 screened both of them together with their third film, Among the Living. After their prequel to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Leatherface, they returned with the Candyman variation Kandisha, which was shown at this year’s SLASH 1/2.
